Untempered grace…

“Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.” Proverbs 29:18

I love to ponder the beauty of God’s grace. It’s everlasting, lacking nothing. Grace is all we need to get to heaven and all it takes to snatch from hell. It’s beautiful…amazing. Grace is the price paid that has given us our freedom. But when we lose our view of grace, our vision of wonderment, something happens…

Where there is no vision, we cast off restraint. Grace is God’s beautiful vision, perfected in Christ, but seeds of doubt plant illness in our minds and we lose the beauty of it all. We cast away the wonders of sin forgiven and let pride dust away the mercy of grace and power of forgiveness.

His grace can be the restraint that prompts our obedience. Choosing to be a blessing with our freedom is grace delivered to others. We bless them by showing the power of a life bathed in forgiveness.

Let us not cast of restraint but rather tie ourselves onto the belt loop of His righteousness. Plant yourself as a display of His splendor. It is in this action that grace comes alive and overflows into the lives of others.

Untempered grace. Redeeming love. Passionate faith. These and more are visions of His sacrifice. Maybe we could be this vision to someone in need today…
